Impact Factor

Journal Citation Reports has recently published journal impact factors (JIFs) for 2015. Arkivocís 2015 JIF was 1.177, up 1% on last yearís 1.165, for a third successive annual rise. However, the journalís ranking among organic chemistry journals declined from 37th in 2014 to 41st in 2015. This drop in ranking is partly explained by the entry of two new review journals, with relatively low paper publication numbers. In addition to the JIF, based on three years of data, Journal Citation Reports also produces a 5 year JIF. Arkivocís 5 year JIF was 1.235, slightly above last yearís 1.181.
